Sorry to learn of Robert’s passing.Condolences to all family members..

This world has lost a true warrior…it will be Heavens gain. Thinking of you Gladys…and the kids, last time I saw Chloe she was in diapers. Bob ( and yourself ) was a role model for me, I was 19 years old when I started working with him in the flooring trade, He may not have been a big man but he was a giant in my eyes. His work ethic and determination, was inspiring to me,..I often wondered if he ever slept,..and every time I see the ad with the Energizer Bunny,…I think of him. Wherever he is,..I`m sure he has a cup of coffee in one hand and a hammer in the other. God rest his soul,. If you need anything you know where I am.

Thoughts and prayers are with you

Our sincere condolences on the passing of your husband/father, know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. With deepest sympathy – Anabel & Scott Villers
